where 'The Happy Show' is on until the 7th September. I reckon fate worked it out that we should see this contemplative and engaging piece of work. The same thing happened in Barcelona when the Sagrada Familia was too full to visit and we ended up at Miro's pad. I'm so glad we caught the exhibition that chronicles Stefan Sagmeister's search for personal happiness.
Here's one I worked out a few years back...the hard way! Maybe there's no bigger torment than living a lie. Didn't some beardy bloke say that the truth would set you free?
What's sort of nice about Granville Island is that there's some proper industry going on, not just artisan food and craft shops catering for tourists. There's lots of boatbuilding and a cement company. These dudes live in their yard.
Finally back to the Museum of Vancouver. I was rather taken by this beautiful track by Siskiyou, a Vancouver band that was playing in the background during the exhibition. Rather melancholic but perhaps we need the contrast of wounds that never quite heal and happiness that is not quite complete.
